Wow...coming back and looking at some of my old haunts is bringing back memories. I'm almost surprised the same region topics are still up. Have I actually missed anything in the last few years?

Luckily for those of us who have been catching up, things have slowed down a lot in the past few years.  Not sure how much you were around for/when you stopped being active, but Ko was overrun by Legacy of Makuta, took hostages in the process, and currently a battle is being waged to free those hostages.  Aside from that, I can't think of any other major island-wide events that are ongoing or have had huge repercussions.  When I spent my time catching up I mostly followed the stories of characters I liked, so I may have missed one or two things.

More than you would think. It's been a long ride.

Apparently this week has become "Ye Olde BZPRPG Players Reunion"

And I'm liking it.

 

This is becoming a bothersome trend. Are you saying I might have to do something?

 

I really hope this doesn't continue.

For better or worse, major story events have been on hold for around half a year as the staff deal with real world issues.   However, it's always worth a try to kick things back into motion.   At the very least, you end up increasing your post count.

Regrettably, it's not the only holdup. Some of the things we're trying to accomplish require action from specific people before we can proceed. We're working to resolve it.

 

As always, I'm happy to see some new-old-faces here. It's great to see people popping up again.

Does anybody know what happened to Sauce? I sent him some arc ideas I needed cleared close to two weeks ago and still haven't received a reply.

EDIT: Just read the prior posts. I guess I'll have to improvise until I can get approval for the other stuff.

Yes, besides him we still have Ghosthands--who controls Echelon, a character that is assumimgly going to do something big to kick of the next are, the rest of the Toa Maru's players, and most of the other matoran that were approached by that mysterious visitor. Plus something probably relevant is happening on Kentoku...

At least we can still make conversation.

I'm excited for the next arc. I regrettably missed most of this RPG's history, so I'm looking forward to being there when it moves forward again.

Nice to see people coming back, might get some traction back in the group.

Hey everyone!  I've been a member of BZPower since I was a kid.  As I grow older, it's always so weird to come back to this site!  I've got some free time in August, and was remembering following some old BZPRPG threads years ago, and how I tried to make a character before but in the end the concept didn't work out, so I thought it might be fun to spend some time making a character and playing this game with everyone for awhile..  I'm posting here first just to ask a few questions; after this, I'll go create and post a character and start playing!

 

First, I see people asking/looking for interaction.  I'm going to try and get ahead of this and say if your character is near me, feel free to interact!  I've played plenty of Dungeons and Dragons in my past, so I'm very experienced in playing fun and fair with everyone :)

 

There's talk about the main plot/story being on hold because of staff member problems?  I hope it's okay that I get involved anyways.  Sorry if this is a bad time to make a new character and if some big new chapter is right around the corner.  Worst case scenario, I'll just retcon my stuff.

 

Lastly, this will be a creative outlet for me in life, so I hope everyone I interact with can appreciate my desire for a fun experience working with a character I created and generating my own fulfilling story.  I'm not really looking to be a major cool hero with awesome powers and expert skill.  I'm actually just gonna make a matoran, but haven't entirely decided which type yet.  Maybe someday it can be a toa but not for now lol.  I think I understand there is a hostage situation going on in Ko-koro right now?  Would it be a bad idea to make my character start out as a victim of this?

 

Thanks everyone for keeping this going without me!  Bionicle fans are best fans.

When I was little I was with a friend and his mom.  We were at Wal-mart.  She bought him a Bionicle.  She offered to buy me something too.  I wanted a mask pack.  I was polite.  I said "No thank you."  There is no worse regret in life.

The main thing holding up the plot is that the staff are waiting on posts from a few players with story relevant characters.

 

As for starting now, it's as good a time as any. Nobody knows how soon the next arc will actually start so there's no point in waiting. Even with that nothing should come along that would require people to retcon stuff with their characters. And while it's probably a staff question I don't personally see a reason why you can't play one of hostages. As long as you are fine with the risk of them getting recaptured and essentially rendered unplayable.

@Silvan, yeah maybe I'll just be in the Koro and detail how I "made it out."  Do you currently have a character within the story?  IF so, how long have you played?  I think the staff could try agreeing with each other that if outside circumstances become too big of an issue for a time like I feel like they are now, then they should allow some staffers who are present and not so entangled in their affairs to force the story to progress.  Just my two cents though, I'm sure they're doing as great a job as they can.

 

I'm going to try and get caught up on the story going on right now.  Would it be enough to just read the Ko-Wahi thread and maybe the main story thread?  Or should I try to understand everything?

Ah hello there. Nice to see new people who are interested in the game. Most of us still here have been playing for quite a few years now, so feel free to ask questions and we'll try to answer them best we can.

I'm about to post my character.  I'm going to be a Ba matoran Acolyte who is basically tired of living in the now-criminal Ko-koro.  I guess there's a battle unfolding, with a large scale fight being kicked off by sirens and a Toa of Sonics' use of their powers, so my matoran will have decided to abandon his studies and meditation and will try to escape now.  Sooooooooo if you see me in the ko-wahi thread feel free to interact!

 

If you could though, could you sum up basically what's going on in Ko-koro right now?  Stannis the toa maru is fighting some bad guy toa named Eisen inside a warehouse where some hostages are presumed to be, and there's a large crowd of bad guys outside being assaulted by the toa of sonics' team?

I've been actively playing ever since I made my account, was watching forrrrrrrrrr...years before that. Can't remember when I started. So yes I have several characters in the game. One of them is the guy holding the giant cannon of tuning forks that the sonic Toa is using to shoot the big sound blast.

 

Should point out something before you start playing as your character. All the normal people either fled the koro when it was invaded or were taken prisoner and held as a hostage by the bad guys. Your guy could theoretically have been in hiding all this time but he certainly wouldn't have been doing much meditating. Aside from that you have the situation roughly down. The Toa Maru learned where the hostages were being held, went to rescue them and drew the attention of half the koro. A team of the good guys who snuck in also noticed that something was going on and and went to see what the commotion was, When they saw what was happening they decided to help and launched the big boom. While that incapacitated most of the crowd outside the building a couple Makuta worshipers got inside to go after the Maru who were trying to tunnel the hostages out. Stannis is fighting a rearguard action.

 

On the subject of which thread to follow. There are no topics for plotlines. Each topic is either an in-game location or an out of game utility such as this place or the Character Profiles topic. The main plotline takes place within the location topics and moves between them as needed.

Lmao too late!  Oh well the details don't really matter: he's a guy who was in ko-koro and wants to get out now.  I referenced the blast in my first post so I'm establishing myself as somewhat close to ya'll.  I hope I can witness some action!  It'll be fun keeping up with your characters!  Thanks for giving me the rundown on what's been going on.  My guy, Azza, has basically just been trying to live in this new city but just cant't anymore, it's too evil and corrupted.  Where Azza will go, who knows.  For starters, he'll just have to get out!

 

Is PMing the preferred method of characters planning out some mutual plot together?  Like if I wanted to encounter you specifically, would we PM about it and what might need to happen to make that work?  Or do you just post and let whatever happens, happen?

If you want to set up some specific plotline or want to ask permission before interacting with someone than PMs are normally used. But if you just want to interact with a person, walking up to them and talking/attacking/helping is also pretty common.
